Dutch Baby Pancake with Apples and Cinnamon

Posted on February 17, 2013
Hi, Everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend! This Dutch Baby Pancake is perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast or brunch! There are so many different ways to make pancakes and it seems like every culture has some sort of variation of this classic. Whether it’s baked, fried, cooked, sweet or savory, a crepe, a Dutch Baby or the regular pancake…. I love any form of it! This Dutch Baby pancake is baked in the oven and is deliciously light and airy, and tastes so good with a generous dusting of powdered sugar and topped with sweet and juicy cooked apples!
(Adapted from Taste of Home)
*Serves 8*
3 eggs
1 cup milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tbs unsalted butter, melted
1 tbs granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Apple Topping:
2 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tbs unsalted butter
Confectioners’ sugar (for dusting at the end)



1. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside. Butter a 9-inch round pan (or a cast-iron skillet, I didn’t have a skillet so I just used a round pan) and preheat your oven to 400 deg F. Pour your batter into the prepared pan, and bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the pancake begins to puff up, the edges begin to curl away from the pan and the pancake is golden brown!

2. While your pancake is baking, prepare your apple topping. Peel and thinly slice your apples, and saute them in a small pan with the butter, sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Cook until the apples are soft.

3. Once the pancake is done, sprinkle it with the confectioners’ sugar and top with cooked apples and serve!


Happy Baking, Everyone!

      Thanks, Vanessa! Hope you love it! And the name refers to a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe (an American recipe). It’s a great breakfast! 🙂

    Did you use Bramley apples or eating apples?

      Hi Louise, you can really use any apples that you like! My favorite are gala, Braeburn or honey crisp, but any will work!
